Jordanian parliamentary elections will be held on 10 November across the country. Security has been stepped up across the country in preparation for the elections. The turnout should be relatively low due to the Covid-19 pandemic and multiple calls by opposition activists to boycott the election.
The vote will also be held in the context of a severe economic crisis aggravated by the Covid-19 pandemic.
In addition, the Jordanian authorities will impose a national lockdown from the 10th to the 15th of November in response to the outbreak of Covid-19 cases across the country. A night-time curfew will be in effect from 22:00 to 06:00 (local time) during this period. Shops and businesses will be forced to close from 21:00 to 06:00. These measures are likely to be extended depending on the evolution of the local health situation.
